The alert sets a number of restrictions, such as a ban on the use of wood-fired heaters and agricultural burning.
In addition, the Ministry of Education suggests not suspending physical education classes, but modifying the intensity of their activities, addressing those learning objectives and more specific contents that do not require greater oxygen consumption, ideally doing them indoors.
The inspection and program of washing and vacuuming of streets is also intensified.
In turn, the calendar of the vehicular restriction continues to govern, which applies from Monday, May 2 in the Américo Vespucio ring of Greater Santiago.
According to the calendar, for this Wednesday vehicles (cars, station wagons and the like) with green seal (catalytic) and registered before September 2011, whose patents end in 4-5, will not be able to circulate. In turn, there is a restriction for vehicles without a green seal with patents ending in 8-9-0-1.
